Scott Feldman is 7-6 in 2013 and went 4-1 with a 2.25 ERA in May. The Baltimore Orioles are in the South side of Chicago as they prepare to begin a three-game series with the White Sox. But before Tuesday night’s game the Orioles acquired right-handed starting pitcher Scott Feldman in a trade with the North side Chicago Cubs, who made three trades Tuesday. The trade sent pitchers Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop and two international bonus slots to the Cubs for Feldman and minor league catcher Steve Clevenger, who was optioned to triple-A Norfolk after the deal. In 15 starts this season, Feldman is 7-6 with a 3.46 ERA — Chris Tillman currently leads O’s starters with a 3.68 ERA. His seven wins are the second most on the Baltimore staff, tied with Jason Hammel. “He’s a proven veteran starting pitcher,” said Dan Duquette, Orioles Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations. “And he should help stabilize our rotation in the second half of the season.” Feldman, a former 17-game winner for the Texas Rangers in 2009, was scheduled to start Tuesday night for the Cubs in Oakland. Instead he will join the Orioles in Chicago and make his team debut likely this series. Clevenger is a 27-year-old Baltimore native that has played in 79 major league games over three seasons. This year at triple-A Iowa, Clevenger is batting .327 with three home runs and 11 RBIs. Jake Arrieta started five games for the Orioles in 2013. His last start was on June 17 against the Detroit Tigers. This year Arrieta is 1-2 with a 7.23 ERA. Shortly after the trade, Arrieta took to Twitter to thank the Baltimore fans and the organization. He also tweeted he was looking forward to becoming a Cub. To everyone involved in the O’s org. and to the fans.. I thank you for 6 memorable years. I wish you all well, and cont’d success in Bmore — Jake Arrieta (@JArrieta34) July 2, 2013 I’ve been a fan of the @Cubs since Chet Stedman was a workhorse. Thankful for the opportunity.. I’m ready. — Jake Arrieta (@JArrieta34) July 2, 2013 Pedro Strop had an excellent 2012 season posting a 5-2 record with a 2.44 ERA but failed to repeat the performance this season. In 29 games, Strop is 0-3 with a 7.25 ERA. The Orioles have won five of their last six games, including three straight against the New York Yankees. Hammel (7-4, 5.09 ERA) opens the series on the mound for the O’s against John Danks (1-5, 4.68 ERA) tonight at 8 p.m. EST.
